The Gambling Cowboy Chophouse and Saloon
I highly recommended this restaurant. The food is fabulous and I love the wine selection from the local wineries.
This is our faborite steakhouse in temecula. Food and drinks are always excellent and we love no.corkage fee on local wines. Def be back here soon
We frequently eat here. Our favorite place by far. But tonight very disappointed. Waitress was horrible in every way. Felt rushed felt unvalued. Rushed to order and the. Waited forever to get s check. Completely unacceptable. Will have to think twice before I go back.
Bone in ribeye
Enjoyed a fantastic Mother's day brunch with my wife and daughter! Service on par as always and food selection for the brunch buffet was insane...our mouths watered and eyeballs about fell out from the many choices. Everything was delicious, from the appetizers, prime rib, ham, eggs benedect and too many sides to cover, not to mention the omelettes to order... perfection! Thanks for another outstanding meal! We will be back again!
We Love the Gambling Cowboy! Decor is great, all of the staff is super friendly and the food is amazing!
Excellent way to spent quality time with your best friends. The food and service were excellent and we will definitely be back!
Seated by the patio door in the back. With all of the people coming in and out you think our service would have been a bit better... The food was excellent!
We had an early reservation and were seated on the patio overlooking downtown. The short rib dinner, the ambiance, and the service all made for a wonderful night out. This was our second visit to Gambling Cowboy and next time we will be coming with friends.
Great casual steakhouse experience. Terrific service and high quality food. Definitely try the marrow bones.
This is my favorite restaurant in town. Always the best
It was a great place! Outstanding food and not too pricey for a steakhouse. The ambiance was fun and inviting. Our waitress was fantastic. You should definitely check it out!
Best chophouse that we have experienced. After dinner we sat at the bar for an after dinner drink but the bartenders ignored us for about 5 minutes.
Three bartenders on duty that evening and not very attentive to us. The girls were to busy talking their regular customers.
Great steak house!!!!
Outstanding service from Shelly. Order the Ribeye - it's cooked to perfection!
Steaks were great. Too noisy.
Came for our 18 year Anniversary on Sunday. We ordered the same steaks this time as last time. Steaks seemed to be a bit smaller than usual. There was a private party of 30 in the bar across the hall. Not sure if all the good cuts went to them or they were the priority of the night. Either way steaks were small for 16 oz and 50 dollars. Husband ordered blackend steak which came out very bland and did not have nearly as much flavor as my Traditional steak did. The waitress felt bad that it took an hour for our food to come out and that his steak didnt have the quality it should. So, she gave us a cowboy chocolate cake slice to make it a little better. It was appreciated. Love the Gambling Cowboy but this is the second time we have come out of maybe 5 times and the steaks weren't up to the quality it should be for 50 dollars. Other time his steak came out cold in the inside and still mooing! Ordered med/ rare. Didn't expect an uncooked cold steak to come out. Seemed to be only seared and forgot to finish cooking it.
Other three times or so were pleasant with good quality and acceptable service time. Food is great if it comes out with the right temp on steak and 16 oz size that is ordered. Aware that a steak cooks down a bit depending on doneness. They shouldn't come out looking like a 8 -10 oz steak after cooked.
My salmon spicy chophouse salad was absolutely delicious and my guest enjoyed their food as well.
It’s always a wonderful experience with delicious food
Overall, a great experience. Food was good and service was spot on. The restaurant is in need of repair. Booths look run down.
Celebrating my husband's birthday. Pleasant staff. I liked the boneless short ribs more than my husband. Taste was good but think he was expecting something more like their sticky sauce ribs. We'd go again.
Great food... reservations still had to wait a bit.... but the food is always excellent as well as the drinks
It was delicious and a bountiful amount of food. The bread was deliciously warm. We will be back again.
Great place for very good food. Great appetizers. Looking forward to our next visit. One of the best steaks I have ever had and I have had steak all over the world.
This is one of our favorite restaurants. We enjoyed our meals, which were made to perfection. A lively bar with good drinks, and you can bring a bottle of the local Temecula wine to have with your meal with no corkage fee. This is a great restaurant within Old Town Temecula and we are never disappointed.
Love this restaurant. It's classic. All their food is amazing and they offer good old fashioned strong drinks!
I would not recommend the Gambling Cowboy to a friend, especially if it was for a special occasion. I will say that the food is very good, but a bit pricey. The service is always good. It is a fun environment. However, on this trip I took my wife there for her birthday, which I indicated to them when booking through Open Table. They gave us the booth I requested, but never during a visit there did they acknowledge my wife's birthday. No hope you're having a great birthday, no note on the table, no nothing. So it made a special dinner not as special, which is a shame. In the past they have acknowledged special occasions, but not this time.
Fabulous restaurant with outstanding customer service. Food was amazing. Great place to celebrate our 30th Wedding Anniversary.
The appetizer was great but my steak came out way too rare so it was sent back. They reheated the same steak and gave it back to me with no flavor. Needless to say I came home and had a pizza.
Great steak & cocktails! Two thumbs up for the bacon wrapped cream cheese stuffed jalapeños.
Fun concept & friendly staff. Busy night and got in right on time. Good dining choices & quality, surprised no music or other non-visual ambience. Def recommend!
I highly recommend the ribeye cap steak! It put the fillet mignon to shame!
Birthday celebration for a friend plus the Rod Run weekend... we are ALWAYS looking forward to dining there and it NEVER disappoints!!!!
Food was great. I eat out a lot and there aren't many restaurants that I want to go back to. I'm looking forward to the next visit to the Gambling Cowboy. I had the prime rib with garlic mashed potatoes, corn and green beans. Everything was delicious! My wife who is allergic to gluten and dairy had the swordfish. Often times when we eat out, the food she gets is not seasoned. She really enjoyed the swordfish and is also looking forward to another visit.
Consistent good food and services.
We love going to the Gambling Cowboy for special occasions. The food has always been excellent and this time was no exception. The steak was cooked perfectly! Can’t wait to go back.
Always a pleasant dining experience. Food is consistently good.
Food was good but not great. Our waitress was very good and made it a wonderful evening. Our table had quite a bit of wear and could use a face-lift. The bench was coning apart. Was hoping for something a little bit nicer based on the other reviews.
